How long is your typical winter?
Roughly when do you get your first significant snowfall ... the one that accumulates on the ground and lasts a while, not just a flurry? When do the temperatures start dipping below freezing overnight ... and during the day?
And roughly when is all, or almost all, the snow melted? When do your temperatures consistantly reach highs above freezing during the day ... or night?
Looking at the local weather information ....
I'd have to say that winter strikes here somewhere around mid-late October. That's when the snow usually starts, and the temperature drops. And it appears that early-mid April is when to expect things to start warming up, although there can still be snow into May. So that's what ... about ... 5.5 months, maybe a bit more.
And that means there is still a good 6 weeks or so of winter. <<sigh>>
